Bernard Zeitler

Bernard Zeitler was a compulsive gambler who has been in recovery since November 21, 2007. His chosen form of gambling was lottery tickets, which are sold at many retailers. Until March 15, 2011, he sold lottery tickets as a part of his job at a convenience store. At the end of October 2007, he was on the verge of losing his job and spent time in an adult Psych. unit for suicidal depression as a result of his addiction. He has a Bachelors Degree in Social Work with a minor in Psychology which was received in 1991 and has worked in various areas of the mental health field. He spends time studying fundamentals of recovery and working in the mental health field. It is his hope and dream to create a program for compulsive gamblers that works with the whole family and has some form of housing for the compulsive gambler while starting their recovery.

Mr. Zeitler decided that he would use his experience as a Social Worker and Recovering Compulsive Gambler to help people understand what happens. On Febuary 14, 2013 the dream started to take form and Stand Tall Recovery Services was born.

Changing The Mindset Routine 

By: Bernard Zeitler BSW Author, Speaker, Researcher


     Recovery from addiction has long included 'detox'  processes for the physical dependence which helps but does not remove the psychological dependence.  Since November 21, 2007 I have developed and used techniques to complete the detox process.  By working on 'reprogramming the brain' to see things differently in an individual moment which ultimately expands to every moment of thought.  The process has its foundation in the 'Anonymous' community of self-help but goes further by making it more personal.  It also builds on the work of Dr. Abraham A. Low who believed in the healing power of the brain.

     What I have developed is a process by which the person starts developing new thoughts to start their day.  It begins with them being given a thought and by the end they develop ones that fit them specifically.  As a result it becomes part of their natural processes.  Ultimately it supplants the thoughts that caused them to return to addiction.

     The method is laid out in my book "An Anthology Of Recovery" which is the result of several trial groups both formal and informal.
